    This was a great idea! Amazing day. I didn’t want to leave the island. Diane was great! She handled a few situations amazingly and very professionally even when some of the other people on the tour were very rude to her. 5 stars!

    Coffee plantation was an unexpected highlight. Fabulous facility and an exceptionally well informed and interesting explanation of the whole process by our guide Donal. Visit to Poas was a hair raising drive, but always felt safe with a clearly experienced driver. Cloud cover over the actual Poas crater was a slight dissapointment, but just walking up in the cloud forest was memorable and serene. La Paz is an otherworldly beautiful garden and rainforest. The animals are rescued wildlife, interesting, although caged. But we certainly never expected to see monkeys or toucans or jaguars in the wild, and this was a reasonably humane lush garden setting. The living jungle rainforest pathway and waterfalls were, simply, sublime.

    Would highly recommend this trip! Early start and first stop was coffee estate for an amazing breakfast and sampling the coffee before walking through the preocss and plant. Stunning place. Then straight to see the crater (which may or may not be visible) and then on to the waterfall gardens. Had no expectations for La Paz waterfall gardens but wow!! The gardens are beautifully laid out, our guide had great facts whilst walking around. It was amazing to see the variety of animals that’s had been rescued. The lunch here was great. We then went to the waterfalls themselves and was really impressed by the walkways created to see all the falls. Unreal day and could not recommend this trip enough. Felt it was great value for money.

    My favorite art of this tour was the Tour Guide, Luis F, explaining the concept of returning the ecosystem of Costa Rica to its natural state from the dirt, grasses, fauna and trees to the animal species that inhabit Costa Rica. It was fascinating to hear it from the mouth of a scientist who’s studying it and walking the talk. Of course it didn’t hurt that we saw numerous 3 toed sloths in various stages of life and activities.

    Waterfalls were impressive. Older travelers should note that significant exertion is required to ascend steps to observation areas

    Amazing tour and tour guides! Max was a very knowledgeable tour guide and the meals included were well worth the price as well. Everything included was worth the price. Also, if you do want a massage, be sure to schedule that ahead of time with the spa and also you have to pay separately for the massage.

    Our tour guide Alberto and boat driver Miguel were amazing. Both very knowledgeable, we saw so many different animals and scenic areas. We also really enjoyed the drive from San Jose to the boat launch. It was very informative and relaxing
